Here's what my day looks like generally: Wake up. No Really, wake up. breakfast, teeth, kids-eat your breakfast. Sit back down! No cartoons, get dressed, brushed teeth. Homework..what day is it? ok, off to school. Don't run around, we are late again. Get in the car. Derek, get. in. the. car!  ok, start buckling up while i get Bre settled. shut door, Derek's side-Why aren't you buckled yet?" buckle him, then me. car on, music up-"Mommy, can you put on *insert song of the morning*" sing and laugh. Hope he doesn't fight too much when i drop him off. "don't go!" the mini fight begins, teacher grabs him so i can go. Always a fight. back in car more buckling, more driving, more singing. home. Bre's tv and play time, emails, work list...make list. answer questions. Remember to work on my book. Morning snack for Bre. diaper change. Man i really need to potty train this little chicklet. Ok, retouch work? get started. facebook distraction. work. oh crap, time to pick up Derek. Car, buckling, singing, driving, pick up, chat time, car again, buckles again, more singing. mailbox, lunchtime, Bre has nap time.
